Decided to go out last minute. Called in for reservations and they were able to squeeze us in! Our server Tyler was excellent! Will be back soon.

My wife and I were in town on personal business and decide to treat ourselves to a dinner at the local Melting Pot. In the past we have had great meals at various Melting Pots. So, to start with we were trying to decide if we wanted to go with our "norm" of the Seasoned Court Bouillon or venture outside... More

Too many things to mention. Rude service. Couldn't get extra spoon without argument. All was an ordeal!

We tried the one in Scottsdale. Both locations are equal in the quality of food & staff. Be prepared to spend $100 for 2 for the 4 course meal plus your tip.

It was a very mellow not so busy Monday night. Food was great, the service started off good but ended very slow. Was there for 2.5 hours for a party of 2..

My magnificent wife surprised me with a trip down Memory Lane with A Valentine Celebration at Melting Pot! Seventeen years ago we had our first Valentine Celebration at a Melting Pot in Atlanta. Tonight was exceptional. There are many choices from veggie to surf and turf entrees. We enjoyed Ahi Tuna, Salmon, and Shrimp as one. Entree and the other... More

Great meal shared with Friends! I have been to All 3 AZ locations and have NOT been Disappointed. Enough choices that even though we had to 'share' some of the items (like which flavor 'broth' to cook in) there were choices that everyone was happy with. GREAT service and nice atmosphere. If you go for a special occasion you can... More

"Despite a minor issue at the onset with the number of people in our reservation, the service was outstanding. Mary, our server, was very efficient and took great care of us during the entire meal. Emily stopped by the table to make sure everything was perfect, which it was. And Tony was great at helping us secure a box of... More

Always enjoy sharing this place with friends. The fondue (cheese and chocolate) are always good with lots of dippers. If you can get a seat at the bar you get "happy hour" prices on the fondues, salads and some drinks all day. Jason did a good job of taking care of us on a busy night. However somebody needs to...

The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style.

Romantic for Couples and Great in a Group.

Our Scottsdale restaurant is easily accessible from the 101. About one mile West on Via De Ventura in the Commons at Hayden Plaza.

The modern yet warm casually elegant atmosphere sets the mood for a relaxing evening. The leisurely paced four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale, all served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. Hand crafted cocktails and great wine list.
